She routinely works with business entities and financial institutions involved in contract disputes and business tort claims, as well as commercial real estate disputes.

She prides herself in working with clients to find solutions to complex legal problems by examining various dispute resolution options, whether by mediation, arbitration, trial or settlement. She briefs her clients on all available options, risks and benefits, to ensure that they feel comfortable and in control during legal proceedings.
